, not from the dni. second of all, it was obvious within 24 hours that the station chief from the cia had said that this was a terrorist attack. and she continued to tell the world through all the talk shows, that it was a, quote, spontaneous demonstration sparked by a video. that's not competence in my view. and the president is the one who is ultimately responsible. that is not an acceptable person, inmy view, to be secretary of state. >> president obama says it is important to find out exactly what happened there but it's outrageous for senator mccain or other republicans to go after miss rice, that it's the president who's responsible, that he should be the one if they want to point fingers or go after anyone. zoraida? >> dan lothian live in washington for us. thank you. >> okay. >>> new developments this morning in "the apprentice" sex scandal leading back to square one. we know the identity of the fbi agent who helped start the investigation that eventually led to the former cia director's resignation. his name is frederick humphries ii, 47 years old and a veteran investigator. also

. also former cia officer bob baer joins us, also barbara starr, pentagon correspondent. in terms of seeing weapons being used here and increasingly sophisticated rockets that are being used, where are they coming from? where are they being smuggled in from? >> they are coming from egypt through tunnels under the desert. most of the components for the rockets are from iran. iran has been building up hamas' capabilities for two decades now. they're getting more and more sophisticated. some of the smaller weapons are being smuggled the same way but they're coming from places like libya. so there's multiple sources. i think what we're seeing with the weaponry from hamas, it's getting better and better. >> ben, you have spent a lot of time here. you've been to rocket making factories as we discussed at the top of the program. but the technology of how the rockets are being fired has changed. >> yes. before, what they were doing was these quick launches, they had three minutes just to set up the rocket, light it and leave, aiming really didn't come into it. now they have automated remo
